APC Responsible For Bloodletting In Nigeria – PDP
…Says APC Leaders Must Answer for Killings
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of being responsible for the escalated tension, indignation, violence, mass killing, kidnapping, terrorism and banditry ravaging various parts of our country.
The PDP wonders how APC leaders sleep at night with all the blood in their hands, as their lust for power, body language, divisiveness as well as vindictive policies of their administration have brought acrimony and resentment among citizens while also encouraging and emboldening acts of terrorists against Nigerians.
Nigerians can recall that the PDP had earlier alerted that the APC had come to power with a Janjaweed agenda; to foist a reign of terror, balkanize, destabilize and raze down our beloved country for their selfish gains.
Since APC assumed office in 2015, our nation has not known peace. At every turn and on daily basis, one is confronted with gory tales of killings, bloodbath, misery and destitution, with thousands of compatriots killed and many more injured and displaced in various parts of the country.
From Kano to Cross River, Lagos to Borno, Kaduna to Imo, Kogi to Ebonyi and indeed all parts of the nation, the APC is erecting altars of violence and pushing life to Hobbes state of nature; short and brutish.
The APC has practically balkanized our nation along all faultlines with their, hateful, ruthless and vengeful actions, resulting in dissonances and pushing compatriots to take actions in anger, in some cases, leading to death and devastations.
More distressing is that the APC leaders, as terrorism apologists, have been patronizing terrorists and opening up our nation to bandits, kidnappers and vandals, who are having a field day marauding our communities, killing and maiming our citizens on daily basis.
It is not surprising that the APC have never forcefully condemned the activities of these marauders. Instead, they have continued to patronize terrorists and blame our slain compatriots, rather than going after their assailants, as in the case of the 43 rice farmers killed in Borno state by terrorists.
This is even as it is now common knowledge that many of these terrorists and bandits were political mercenaries which the APC imported from neighbouring countries as thugs to unleash violence against Nigerians during elections.
The sudden appearance of such hoodlums to attack Nigerians during any protest against misrule, as witnessed in the EndSARS protest as well as the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) protest in Kaduna, is quite revealing in this direction.
There are even allegations that the APC has compromised the registration of our citizens to open the system for the inclusion of these aliens, as citizens, for heinous political reasons.
This is why APC’s political activities are always characterized by violence, bloodbath and killings, like their recent local government primaries in Lagos.
Our party cautions the APC to stop wasting the lives of Nigerians because of their lust for power in the face of rejection.
Let APC leaders know that even as their party fizzles out in 2023, they must answer for the violence and bloodletting that have enveloped our nation under their rule.

OKPE UNION NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL.

28th May, 2021
Press Statement.

MESSAGE OF APPRECIATION TO MEMBERS OF TROMPCON ON THE ELECTION OF THE ORODJE OF OKPE AS NATIONAL CHAIRMAN.

The National Executive Council of the Okpe Union expresses, on behalf of the members and branches of the union nationally and the Diaspora, our profound gratitude to the traditional rulers of the Niger Delta and other oil producing kingdoms under the auspices of the Association of Traditional Rulers of Oil and Mineral Producing Communities of Nigeria (TROMPCON) on their election of the Orodje of Okpe as the National Chairman of the body. We are particularly impressed that our revered traditional leaders all over the oil producing regions of the country were able to appreciate the sterling leadership and administrative qualities of HRM Orhue I, the Orodje of Okpe, to elect him to this strategic office in these trying times of our nation.

With his administrative acumen, Orhue I has ensured peace and stability of the Okpe Nation for well over a decade now. In addition to this, we believe that the wealth of experience of His Royal Majesty in military coordination in the country during his service years as a general in the Nigerian Army gives him unique security insights in the area of affording advice to the political leaders in respect to the security of the states of the region generally and in the oil production sector.

As the Okpe Union congratulates HRM, Orhue I, the Orodje of Okpe on his election, we pray the Almighty God who alone grants leadership offices, to grant him the wisdom, good health and wherewithal to excel in the new assignment.

Signed:

Prof. Igho Natufe, President General, the Okpe Union.

Akpederin Kingsley Ehensiri Esq., General Secretary, the Okpe Union.

Mrs. Akeredolu Shares BRECAN’s Journey, Urges Vaccination Against Cervical Cancer

Mrs. Akeredolu Shares BRECAN’s Journey, Urges Vaccination Against Cervical Cancer

*As All Saint’s College Wins BRECAN’s Inter-School Arts Competition

The wife of Ondo State Governor and founder Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria (BRECAN), Arabinrin Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, shared her breast cancer story. She said hers was a lone voice in the wilderness as nobody wanted to be associated with BRECAN at its formative stage.

Mrs. Akeredolu stated this while addressing student participants drawn from different schools across Oyo State during the Inter- School Arts Competition held at the Law Hub, Ibadan organized as part of activities marking 2021 World Cancer Day by the Oyo State Chapter of BRECAN.

Arabinrin Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, who acknowledged the contributions of individuals, groups and most especially volunteer students who through advocacy raised funds for BRECAN’s activities, said the journey has been tortuous and rewarding as more lives have been impacted.

While noting that the Arts Competition was the second of its kind in the history of BRECAN in promoting breast cancer awareness, Mrs. Akeredolu said BRECAN is now set to help eliminate incidence of Cervical cancer which she noted can be eliminated one hundred percent.

On why women have continued to die needlessly because of the disease, Mrs. Akeredolu identified ignorance as one of the major causes, saying, “it is shocking that some still assume it is a spiritual attack and only present when it is too late.”

Mrs. Akeredolu, while stressing that cervical cancer can be eliminated through vaccination, said it’s high time parents are educated on the need to give consent to the vaccination of their children against Cervical Cancer. She also urged the students to be breast aware and be breast health advocates wherever they find themselves.

In her Goodwill Message, Olori Adejumoke Adeleye, Olori Olubaka of Oka land, commended Mrs. Akeredolu for initiating BRECAN. The Olori said Arabinrin Akeredolu’s committment to the cause is laudable and will remain a ray of hope to many. She prayed for wisdom and grace for survivor of 24 years to continue in her service to humanity.

The climax of the event was the presentation of prizes to winners. All Saint’s College came first in the competition followed closely by Seed of Life College which came second and the third position went to Lead City International College.

Earlier, Promise Ihieze while speaking on the theme of the program: “Hope” said the Arts Competition was their own way of sending the message of hope across to survivors and bringing attention to the cause.

Earlier, the state Chairperson for Oyo State BRECAN, Tolu Taiwo, in her Welcome Address, acknowledged all those who have been pillars of support to BRECAN over the years, noting that there is still more grounds to cover.

Other dignitaries in attendance include Bashorun Arogunjo and his wife, BRECAN members from across the state among others.
